For many political scientists, the answer to Jon Tester’s victory is simple. After all, incumbents win nearly 80% of the time in the Senate. It can be expected that Tester would fall on the majority side of that break. Still, Montana is a conservative state, and Jon Tester is a Democrat who “votes with Obama 97% of the time”. He, like Obama, loves to spend money gained by raising taxes on hard-working Americans.

Fortunately, there have been innocent people exonerated and released from prison thanks to DNA testing. People should be cautious when making an eyewitness testimony, they should make sure that they are 100% sure that they are picking the right person.

Yet, Dookhan was let go on parole only because this was the first time prosecutors ad the list of all the defendants affected by the case. Annie Dookhan was convicted on drug charges from fabricating thousands of test results. For someone to face such a light sentence for ruining countless lives with falsification of many different evidences is seen as a disgrace.
